APT NYC 2013
For the first time in history, the population of cities exceeds that of the surrounding suburbs and countryside. Both millennials and baby boomers are flocking to city centers; New York City, after decades of population decline, has recently exceeded its peak 1970s population and continues to grow.
Both expanding and shrinking cities of all sizes present new challenges that require preservationists to think broadly and collaboratively, themes that will be highlighted during the 45th Conference of The Association for Preservation Technology International (APT) at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square from October 11-15, 2013.
“Whether dealing with pollution’s effects, development pressures, unique infrastructure problems or energy needs related to building performance, the architects, planners, conservators, engineers and other preservationists attending New York City will continue to determine how we best protect our urban cultural heritage in this modern age,” said Joan C. Berkowitz, President of APT.
Registration is open at www.aptconference.org. Best rates are available prior to August 9.
